what is the proper way to install a pressure tank for a jet pump (well)?
I think i did mine wrong 'cause the pump shuts off at 10 psi, unless there's another reason why it (jet pump)runs for 5-10 sec and shuts off
Thanks ahead :thumbsup:

It has nothing to do with the pressure.
It's a storage tank so the pump does not have to turn on and off everytime a faucet is opened.
Pressure switches come preset to a low and high limit, the pump should keep right on running it until it hits the high point preset on the switch, did you mess with the switch?

Ayuh,.... I hate when that happens,....:laughing:

For what it's worth,...
I've found it don't really matter just Where ya put the pressure tank in the system, nor how Many of 'em ya use....
